What do you want? In this episode, we want you to ask what you want so badly that you’ll do anything to get it.
You might want to get out of credit card debt because credit card debt is no fun. It’s not a great feeling to have money going toward debt every month. But what getting rid of that debt might mean is that you’re able to take an international trip every year. The trip is what you want. Sure you might want to pay off your debt, but the trip is the thing you desire. It’s the real goal. Your debt is the thing standing in the way.
Let’s use a fitness example now: When training and getting fit, you might want to lose weight. But what you’re really after are the benefits that come from taking your fitness and nutrition seriously - feeling better, having more energy, and being healthy. Those things are more important than numbers on a scale. Those are the things you actually desire.
It’s the same with your money. You have to figure out your real goals and those are the desires that will fuel you to make the changes you want to make. In this episode, financial coaches and fitness enthusiasts Kelsa Dickey and Jill Emanuel talk about how goal setting and goal achievement play an important role in becoming good with your money.
